the dea and the mexican army was on my ranch looking for me. they didn't know me that day but wanted to tell me to keep my nose out of their business and when operation gatekeeper started they were watching the gates but not the fences and what some friends held fortunately, we used to go out at night which is right now san diego time and picked up 20-100 a night on the border patrol. shannon: 250 acres of property, you where your bulletproof vest, take out your rifle, defending your own property, dealing with these drug cartels. we heard griff jenkins talk to the border patrol chief in the rio grande area, it is these
criminal cartels controlling where people are crossing the border and a lot on your property. >> exactly right. shannon: you had a $20,000 bounty on your head. >> correct. shannon: that has to do with what you were talking about. >> that and i stopped them from driving truckloads of drugs from my ranch. heather: that is one of the problems the president needs to shut down the border, build the wall because of these drug cartels and the drugs crossing into the country. tell us more about that. >> they drive truckloads through when they put up the steel fence. that helps with the drive-throughs, they run the trucks over the top of the wall

what do you say to them? >> the reason they are like that is they don't want their drug supply cut off. heather: one more time? >> my take on it is those people don't want their drug supply cut off, they were the drug cartel to come through. todd: 1 would happen if they had open borders? >> what says it best, heaven has walls and very restrictive entry and hell has no boundaries and that is why we are in hell. heather: i am going to leave it right there. thank you for joining us, we appreciate it, thank you for doing what you have to do to protect our country, not only your property but to protect the united states and keeping

the time is half past the top of the hour and a heartwarming or heartbreaking twist for an already devastated family. the man who claimed to be this missing boy turns out to be a 23-year-old convicted felon. and investigator calls that downright evil and joins us with where the investigation goes from here.
heather: half past the top of the hour, you are watching "fox and friends first," starting with a fox news alert. donald trump will get a firsthand look at the border crisis. he's heading to california where the aclu filed a motion to stop wall construction calling it unconstitutional. border officials say they were on track to arrest 100,000 migrants last month.
a 17 hour standoff and then tragedy in georgia, a gunman killing a pregnant woman and a teenager before taking his own life, the incident began with the suspect's girlfriend trying to kick him out. two officers were shot trying to get inside the home but they will be okay. a person claiming to be missing boy turns out to be a full-grown man. dna tests proving felon brian rini falsely claimed to be 14-year-old timothy pittsson who has been listening to -- missing since 2011. the families understand we had broken. >> we know you're out there somewhere, tim, and we will never stop looking for you. it is like reliving that day all over again. heather: let's bring in vincent hill, thank you for joining us. >> good morning. heather: this definitely was
not the ending so many people not to mention the family hoped for in this incident. what do you make of it? a 23-year-old man claiming to be a 14-year-old boy. >> the biggest question was what was his motivation behind this and why now? timothy went missing in 2011 so why now, eight years later? you have to question does he know the family in some way? does he know amy, the mother little timothy? why would he do this? more importantly, what charges will he face? he definitely should face charges. you heard the aunt saying they are devastating. that was such an evil thing to do so he should face the charges to the maximum extent of the law for this. heather: before we get to those
charges i want to ask you about that. your gut instinct as to what his motivation would have been, he was so specific in his description not only showed up claiming to be his 14-year-old child missing since 2011 but was specific in the alleged kidnapping and describing the kidnappers saying they had tattoos on the arms and the back of their neck and specific about this suv at a hotel. what is your gut instinct as to his motivation? >> i don't know if he needed 15 minutes of fame but we are in an age you can find things on the internet, maybe this is something he read on the internet, he knew the specifics of this case, he knew timothy's name and when he went missing so maybe it is something he made up. whatever his motivation was, totally evil for him to do that to this family. heather: do you think he had inside information he couldn't have found out online? perhaps he was somehow related to the incident that happened?
>> absolutely that is definitely could be the case. that is something for the investigators to look at. the fbi and the office is looking into this as well. not only are they talking to this guy finding out why he did this but definitely talking to him about what he knows about timothy and his whereabouts and anything related to this case. heather: the fbi said the local investigation continues into not only this person who they were able to identify but the investigation into poor timothy who has been missing and perhaps this should some new light on the case. what about that q publicity is what i'm talking about. >> anytime you have a missing child under the circumstances he did, he was with his mother and picked up from school, kids
are picked up every day, you don't expect them to go missing in the custody of the parent. this case needs to find out what happens, is he still alive? we have to take into consideration is little timothy still alive? heather: more of a reason to take that into consideration because the mother when she was found in that up allegedly committing suicide in this hotel room when he disappeared. she left a note that said he is fine but will never be found. >> that is very troubling she would say he would never be found. when you look at the video surveillance of her last night, she's seen without little timothy and investigators found blood in her suv, her cell phone was found on the side of the road in illinois, not in the hotel room where she took her life.
you would assume she -- not someone going in the room and moving her phone and when investigators look at her phone there were no text messages or phone calls or emails. when you look at the fact there was blood in her suv that comes back to timothy, have to question whether he's still there. that something we don't want to thing about, she could have taken timothy's life but it is an avenue that has to be investigated. heather: i had not read they discovered blood in her suv. thank you for joining us. hopefully more information will come out of this bizarre ending at least this ending and what will be an investigation. thank you, have a good day. a fox news alert, previously reported illegal immigrants arrested on 100 child sex crime charges. a registered sex offender in california is now behind bars in louisiana.
the state's attorney general says the arrest should serve as a wake-up call to congress demanding lawmakers support donald trump's border wall. a manhunt underway for a gunman accused of shooting and killing a 10-year-old girl in a fit of road rage. a man in this white truck followed a family home and opened fire when he pulled into their driveway in phoenix. neighbors understandably shocked. a victim of this -- >> heartbreaking. heather: police releasing this sketch of the suspect. unclear what sparked the shooting but the girl's father was also shot but is expected to be okay. chicago vowing to sue jussie smollett for refusing to pay for the investigation into his
alleged hate crime hoax, the city requesting $130,000 from the empire actor and if he doesn't pay by today he could be on the hook for three times that amount. chicago's top prosecutor tim cox dropped all charges against jussie smollett and the chicago police union is demanding that she step down. fox reacting in a statement saying, quote, i was elected by the people to pursue community safety, prevent harm and uphold fairness and equal justice. i am proud of my record in doing that and i plan to do so through the end of my term. forget the presidency, this teenager wants beto o'rourke to be her date to the prom. the 2020 hopeful turned her down on the campaign trail in iowa but offered her something else instead. >> someone who did not go to the prom, we came up with a counterproposal.
[applause] heather: she can't caucus for o'rourke in iowa. should she should he have gone or not? howard shultz shaking things up in the 2020 field with a potential third-party run but has a spoiler alert for liberals. >> if a democrat runs resembles bernie sanders who says he's a democratic socialist, donald trump is going to get reelected. heather: the democratic party after recent shift that could cost them the election. that debate next. ♪
to restore promise of america. vast majority of americans are in the middle. i'm a centrist. i've been a lifelong democrat, the democratic party left me. heather: howard shields making his case to independent voters in a fox news townhall. his objections to the democratic party after recent shift towards socialism enough to sway voters to back a third-party candidate? here to debate is chairman of the committee to defend the president, ted harvey and liberal political analyst rochelle ritchie. appreciate it. how big of a danger is shultz to democrats. >> he is a huge danger. there is a reason we have a 2-party system, because the people in the middle will not be able to pull enough people out of the democratic party to win an election.
ross perot, when he ran as an independent, we have a 2-party system and that is the way it works, and if you seriously should run as a democrat but they can't because the democrat party has become such a leftist party, you have an avowed socialist probably going to win the nomination. heather: what do you think of that? howard shultz said in a townhall that if bernie sanders and that being the democratic candidate donald trump will win reelection. >> that is his opinion, not by those who support bernie sanders. howard shultz said he is running because summer too far to the right and others are too far to the left and he's more of his centric candidate. beyond that i think howard shultz has an issue. right now he can't actually be president if you illuminate the
u.s. constitution. you have 538 electors in this country, you need 270 constitutionally to be president. if he runs as a viable third-party candidate he can only successfully split the electoral college to ensure the 270 is never achieved. what happens when he does that? goes to a block vote in congress per state, and blocking the vote to the republican president. democrats should be afraid of howard schultz being a spoiler. heather: in terms of running, he benefits republicans. >> certainly he does. he is a democrat running on democrat principles but he can't win through the democrat primary system because he is too moderate at the democrat party has become so leftist you had every single democrat candidate running for president
right now cosign the green new deal even though that was so radical it couldn't get the votes to pass out of the senate. the democrat party has gone so far to the left that a moderate like shultz can't win it. that is where we are in american politics. heather: we had one other moderate saying he's going to jump into the ring and he will be on the democratic side and that would be for speaker of the house against nancy pelosi, he announced on the view he will be running. what about that middle-of-the-road candidate for the democrats? >> the middle-of-the-road candidate compared to some on the far left and also beto, another guy who is pretty moderate, pulling's number one and number 2 given the scientific polling out there.
you have a lot of diversity in the democratic party and it is an unfair characterization to say the democratic party is so far left, a moderate tone cannot get elected in the primary. the polling is clear, joe biden and beto have viable chances to win the primary. joe has not announced yet, pulling a number one consistency. heather: tim ryan ran for house minority leader against nancy pelosi. >> to say that beto is a moderate is crazy. 's for infanticide, he is for the green new deal, he is for every socialist policy democratic party has pushed over the last four years. he is as far left as any of the candidates that are out there. that the problem the democratic party has with the field of candidates, they can't win in a general election across this country.
heather: interesting to see if things change after howard shields's appearance last night. a lot of people saying he did a good job, refined speaker, have specific ideas so we will see. thank you for joining us, have a good weekend. the time is 10 minutes until the top of the hour and dining on your dime. should people be up to use food stamps at restaurants? the state pushing to make that happen? >> alexa, turn on the fan. >> alexa, read 1 cup of coffee. heather: what about alexa, diagnose me. how amazon's virtual assistant could play your doctor. ♪ moving is hard.

heather: paging doctor alexa, amazon adding healthcare tools with voice-activated assistant. tracy carrasco is here to explain how it would work and if it is a good idea. >> reporter: amazon announced software that allows a lot of healthcare companies to build hippo compliant alexa tools to transmit medical information to patients. six organizations will use this software for alexa for children's hospital. and the network of 51 hospitals and health insurance cigna. patients will get a number of things like personalized medical information like progress report after surgery, prescription deliveries, even find out the locations of urgent care center. not sure if you can get any sort of medical diagnosis from alexa.
